Linda Gleitz presents “Social Structure” a multi-piece work consisting of 80 “buildings” about social justice on many different levels.  Linda calls it a “city” made of clay. The buildings average about 9 inches-ish. The buildings are full of people doing all of the nefarious and pleasant things that people do behind closed doors.  Linda will also show individual pieces that are part of her “army” of goddesses.  Their purpose is simply to bring compassion and beauty to our world.

Andrea Gordon’s collection of work called “What’s Next” is about embracing change and taking chances.  The varied works reflect Andrea’s exploration of abstract painting from the past 3 years. Trying to be free and open throughout, she created groups completely different from one another using different techniques or sources of inspiration. Moving onto larger works, Andrea pushes the boundaries of color and pattern, most notably a 6’x8’ mural made of 24 separate pieces – each standing on it’s own while being part of the whole.  Most recently, large scale paper-mache sculptures and ceramics incorporate her unique style.

In the Annex - University of Denver Students

Opening Reception, June 1, 6-10pm

"Within" is an exhibition of art created by University of Denver students in an experimental workshop taught by Professor Deborah Howard.  In the course personal expression was strongly encouraged and students were free to work in any media.  Students had their own studios in a large classroom that was a community where the exchange of ideas flourished.  

"Within" explores childhood, memory, cultural identity and the natural environment.  Media and subjects include: portraits in ois, photo transfers on fabric, sculptures made of toys and animated digital media.
